Before Installing Soundcard
Its essential to wipe out every trace of any existing soundcard softR ware
prior to installing the Harmonic Edge. Go to
Start/Settings/Control Panel and choose Add/Remove Programs.
Highlight the entry for the existing sound card software (if any) and
click Add/Remove. Most sound card software will uninstall all files,
drivers, and applications that relate to the sound card, but you might
need to uninstall several different software components from the
Add/Remove list. If you can't find anything that relates to the sound
card in the Add/Remove Program list, check for un-install options in
the sound card software. An alternate method is to go to the Device
Manager and remove sound card entries under the Sound, video
and game controllers tab.
If the PC has sound support built into the motherboard, you'll need to
disable that sound support before the PSC can be installed. This is
usually done through the PC's setup program (BIOS) and/or by setting a jumper on the motherboard. There might be as many as 3 setting in BIOS that may need to be disabled, check the motherboard
user's guide for these settings.
RS
TATIC ELECTRICITY CAN CAUSE PERMANENT DAMAGE
TO YOUR SOUND CARD
To prevent damage please:
1. Always hold your sound card by its edges. Avoid touching any
electronic components on your sound card.
2. Use a grounding strap or touch any non -painted surface of your
computer chassis before you begin installation to discharge
static electricity.

About Sensaura Technology
• The Philips Harmonic Edge takes PC audio to the next level of realism
with Sensaura’s groundbreaking ZoomFX™, MacroFX™ and
EnvironmentFX™ technologies.
• Sensaura ZoomFX simulates the acoustic energy that sound emitting
objects radiate from large scale areas, strips and volumes. This provides
‘big sound realism’, and is useful for example, for an extended railway
train passing a stationary individual.
• Sensaura MacroFX creates ‘near-field proximity effects’ as experienced in
real-life when objects move very close to the listener, such as bees
buzzing around your head or bullets flying past your ear.
• Sensaura Environment FX acoustically renders 3D audio environments.
Up to 26 different pre-set environments are provided such as underwater
effects, sewer-pipe and so on. This technology is compatible with
Creative Labs EAX 1.0, EAX 2.0 and also I3DL2 as prescribed by IA-SIG.
• Sensaura technology is specifically engineered to enhance the industry
standard Microsoft’s DirectSound3D™ API (DS3D). Interactive games
will now come alive as the acoustic environment engulfs you. The technology is also compatible with all A3D 1.0.
• Complete 360o horizontal and vertical positional audio above and below
you, to your left and right, in front and behind you, so now you can hear
your enemies coming at you from any direction long before you see them.
